The Amber Room, created by Empress Elizabeth, is a stunning recreation of the Amber Study that the King of Prussia gave to her father Peter the Great in 1716. The original was called "The Eighth Wonder of the World" and was the subject of a great international mystery when invading German soldiers reclaimed the amber panels during World War II , sending them to Königsberg Castle where they disappeared at war's end. The recreation began in 1979 and was completed in 2003 and is located in the rococo Catherine Palace, the summer home of the tsars just south of the city. Hours are seasonal, but it is closed Tuesdays and the last Monday of each month.
